I was thrilled to be seated next to the window and enjoyed the food to the point of tilt! LOL The cocktail sauce had the perfect zing of horseradish, the lobster bisque was rich, creamy and flavorful and my lobster was amazing! We topped the evening off with a chocolate lava cake with raspberry sauce and ice cream. The wait... More

We enjoyed the view, perfectly prepared lobster with corn and potato (although prices were a bit inflated due to location I'm sure). Clam chowder was rich and tasty but the fried clams and crab cake were very average.

The view of the Nubble lighthouse is beautiful, but the food experience at the restaurant was not as good. There was a large bug (dead) in my salad - may have been a roach. I was not trying to get my meal comped, but they didn't do anything except take away the salad plate. The fish was fairly bland and... More

We've been here many times over the years and enjoyed the food and the view. Last night was an exception (although my husband did get to watch a fisherman land a 38" striper from the rocks while we waited for our dinner to arrive. My fish chowder had a vinegar like taste to it and my haddock sandwich had a... More

The hotel clerk suggested this restaurant to us, along with one other for seafood. The choice was easy since the view was fantastic! We were seated immediately by the window! We expected that we would be paying more for our dinner than other establishments because of the location; but we expected to get what we paid for. We had a... More

After a day of sightseeing along the New Hampshire and Maine coasts, dinner at Fox's Lobster House was indeed the perfect ending to a great day!!! The fried clams were excellent as was the lobster bisque, but I have to say the clam chowder was truly one of the best we've ever had!! The views of the Maine coast are... More

The view. I could leave it at the view but the food was awesome as well. Awesome lobster roll and the clam chowder was to die for!! Will gladly return.

We had lunch here after visiting the Nubble lighthouse. You get great views of Cape Neddick and the lighthouse. The food is very good. We specially recommend any of the lobster dinners. Portions are generous, well cooked and presented, and the price is worth it. Service was fast and friendly. In all a very enjoyable dining experience.

Not that we were tired of whole live Maine lobsters, just tired of the work. So I tried fried lobster tails and I found them delicious. The owner's daughter was there and she was very nice, the views were great and do not forget to have a slice of blueberry pie!!!
